Written by Doug Harvey and Jeff Sova

Looking out my window at the clouds in the sky
It’s so peaceful watching the world go by
Sunlight on the water, breezes in the trees
This is it, this is paradise

I want to stay for the rest of my life
But I have to go
Back to the hustle, back to the strife
Why, I really don’t know

There’s lots of time for fishing, lots of time to read
Time to watch the kids playing in the sand
Visit with my neighbors, visit with my friends
Plant a garden, lend a helping hand

Repeat Chorus

I want to live a more simple life
One of these days
Work with my hands, sleep with my wife
There’s got to be a way

Don’t you ever wonder what you do it for?
Run the race, pay the price
Maybe it’s tomorrow, maybe it’s next year
This is it, this is paradise

Repeat Chorus
